The sun woke me up much earlier than I would have liked this morning. I don’t feel like I live that far north because our climate is pretty mild, but the truth is hard to ignore when it gets close to the solstice. It’s nice when it stays light out really late, but the trade-off is that it gets really bright really early. Trying to make the most of a not so-pleasant situation, I used the extra time this morning to knit in bed and finish my sleeve. I would rather have been sleeping because sleep is one of the few things I love more than knitting, but I have to admit that knitting in bed is a great way to start the day.
